: the continuing ongoing coverage of the crisis in ukraine, the situation in crimea remains tense with warning shots fired earlier today by russian soldiers. this morning russian president vladimir putin gave his first press conference since the conflict began. he said he saw no reason for forces to intervene in eastern ukraine at the moment but did not close the door on military action. [ speaking in foreign language ] >> charlie: president obama also spoke today and promised consequences for russia's actions. >> from the perspective of the european union, the united states, allies like canada and japan and allies and friends and partners around the world, there is a strong belief russia's action is violating international law. i don't know if president putin seems to have a different set of lawyers making a different set of interpretations, but i don't think that's fooling anybody. i think everybody recognizes that, although russia has legitimate interests in what happens in the neighboring state, that does not give it the right to use force as a means of exerting influence inside of that st

a few words about the situation in ukraine. as president obama has explained in no uncertain terms, the steps russia has taken to violate ukraine's sovereignty, ukraine's territorial integrity, are a breach of international law. at this time we're looking into a wide range of options including sanctions and ways to increase russia's political and economic isolation. our ultimate goal is to de-escalate the situation in ukraine. as the ukrainian government prepares for elections in may, it's critical that the international community support their efforts to restore economic stability. i've spoken with ukrainian prime minister a number of times now and he's told me that his government is ready to adopt vital economic reforms. we've been working closely with the international partners and congress to develop an assistance package that will help the ukrainian government implement the reforms needed to restore financial stability and return to economic growth. the united states has developed a package of bilateral assistance focused on meeting ukraine's most pressing needs. this package
